Our production area is growing and improving

Posted by: Melanie Verburg, marketing specialist

As the number and sizes of our projects continue to increase, we needed to make some room for them and the best way was to build up – with a mezzanine. We’ve increased our production space by about 20%, allowing us to relocate our raw material inventory and free up more space for large unit production to meet our customers’ growing needs.

Company Value: Righteous Living

Posted by Pat Turley on November, 27 2017

At Ball Systems, we believe that our values are critical to our own success, as well as our ability to effectively serve our customers. Each month during our all-hands company meeting we discuss two or three of our core values to help keep them top of mind for our team members. This week I want to focus on our “Righteous Living” value, what it means to us as a company and how it positively impacts our customers.

Righteous Living: We believe that character matters…in all areas. We are truthful and not deceitful. We honor one another, our customers, and our suppliers by being honest in our dealings with one another. We recognize that who we are at work, and in our personal lives are not separable, and one reflects on the other. We will live lives that our mothers would be proud of.

What this means to our customers: You can expect transparent and fair interactions. We hire for integrity and we intend to operate that way as a company. This means that we strive to do what’s right, even when it is uncomfortable. You can also expect to be treated with respect and with no hidden agendas. We desire long-standing and mutually beneficial relationships with our customers and believe that operating with truth, honor, and character is the foundation of those relationships.

We are thankful for a lot of things, eating a meal together is one of them

Posted By: Melanie Verburg, marketing specialist

Through the hustle and bustle of our daily lives at work and at home, we understand the importance of sitting down together and having a meal to celebrate Thanksgiving. So, today as a team, we enjoyed one of the best meals of the year together. We came together with our side dishes and our desserts and of course a deep-fried turkey or two! There was green bean casserole, cheesy potatoes, stuffing, collard greens, buckeyes, and the real winner today was a cheesecake pumpkin pie.

Company Value: Self-Employed Mentality

Posted by Pat Turley, president

At Ball Systems, we believe that our values are critical to our own success, and also our ability to effectively serve our customers. Each month during our all-hands company meeting we discuss two or three of our core values to help keep them top of mind for our team members. This week I want to focus on our “Self-Employed Mentality” value, what it means to us as a company and how it positively impacts our customers.

We strive to have mentality that we own the place; that this isn’t just a J-O-B. This means making decisions as if each team member were an owner and sacrificing oneself for the betterment of the organization. Andy and I instill in our team members the importance of making good financial and business decisions that drive both short and long-term profits, customer loyalty, and teamwork. We all work together to take care of our facilities. And if we are really thinking about being “self-employed”, we also recognize the importance of how we’re perceived on and off the job.

What this means to our customers: At the end of the day, we want team members who are as passionate about what we do as Andy and I are as owners of the business.  This means looking out for the company, for each other, and importantly, for our customers.  We firmly believe that team members who are effectively engaged will make the best decisions rather than just going through the motions.  This empowered servant attitude exhibits itself daily in our customer interactions, and we see the results of that customer care in our bottom line.

New Project Update

A few weeks ago, Ball Systems was awarded a large project with a major Tier-1 automotive supplier for the design and delivery of multiple durability test dyne stations for a new hybrid electric vehicle (HEV) product. Many teams submitted an RFQ and were considered for the project and Ball Systems ultimately won because of our demonstrated ability to create solutions that meet the demands of acute specificity in design, critical electronic test factors, and high-throughput reliability for our customers.
